New technology in "smart guns" recognizes the owners ' fingerprints or hand grip or has other features controlled by the owner, so firearms can 't be stolen or accidentally fired by a child. Those guns are not currently mass-produced in the U.S., a recent "60 Minutes" report found, in part because of fears that they might lead to greater gun control. There are accidental deaths that happen everyday where a child accidentally shoots him or herself or someone else.
Several say that it is the solution to the big problem the United States has with school shootings. It may not stop the shooter but it could prevent a massacre. Others believe that teachers having guns is too much. They think that the children need more loving and caring adults in their lives, not more guns. People also believe that any kind of automatic or semi-automatic gun should be banned in the United States.
This idea, while having some kinks to work out has good intentions and would save numerous young livers in this kind of situation. The teachers carrying firearms would be trained and they would need to receive training often to keep their gun.

With these features, this idea would be a way to dissolve a situation quickly and save the lives of the children in a school. Hunter Pollack, a brother of one of the Florida victims stated that if there had been “’a teacher who could go through discreet training to carry a firearm around his waist, it could’ve been a very different situation”(CNN
Gun control should be allowed if they use the guns the right way and not abuse it by using it for the wrong reasons or just to go around shooting people. In order to have a gun you should be able to shoot it and you need to have a license to show how old you are to see if you're old enough to have a gun. There are some pros and cons to gun control. One pro is that three quarters of the guns that was obtained legally by the killers, and if there was pro gun control advocates believe tougher gun laws would potentially prevent any crimes. The gun control laws protect children and their families, the moms demand action, people believe that the guns in America is creating a public health crisis that is attacking the children.
I believe that there should be limitations to bring weapons to schools, hospitals, parks and to many other places. There are many pros and cons based on the idea of concealed carry being allowed in certain places. The pros of concealed carry being allowed in school are that in the case of a school shooting it would help students to defend themselves. It is said by people that they believe that teachers should be able to keep guns with them for safety. In the article, “Certain Areas Off-limits to Concealed guns”, by Narda Perez it mentioned that

Instruments once used specifically, in war environments are now flooding the streets and putting the people in danger. It usually was safe for people to go out to enjoy entertaining events such as concerts. However, one cannot step out lately without worrying if they would be able to safely return to their homes at the end of the day. The most common factor that is almost always involved in incidents such as murder, mass shootings, muggings, and suicides or deaths in general in the United States, is guns.
The incident, and several others public shooting incidents, would have been avoided if the shooter did not have a weapon on his person and if the country had more strict gun control laws. If Texas allows students to open carry their own weapons in school, hundreds more similar incidents may occur. The only time a state should be allow laxed gun laws is when the people have total and complete faith among each other, which is something that we currently lack in the country as of now. As public shootings occurrences continue to rise in the country, the people clearly are not ready to handle the situations by themselves. The Campus carry Law is not a step to better and protect the people as it will increase the rick of others, will not make people feel safe, and lead to more
If we give teachers gun the number of school shootings and the amount of young children dying will go down. The children that lost friends to school shooting or are afraid of one happening will feel safer. A child is not supposed to worry about their safety at school. Only the teachers that pass a series of test will get a gun. That is why I believe teachers should be able to carry concealed weapons and make the school and students
It is one thing to be scared, it is another thing to be so scared that a 12-year-old boy with a toy gun is seen as a threat, such as seen in the death of Tamir Rice. The first step begins with acknowledgment and education. Police training should involve less use of force and hold police officers to a higher standard. Officers should be trained in methods that prevent deaths, perhaps even given sensitivity training to better empathize with people of color. I, as a citizen of the United States should not be scared to call on the police for help.
In the end school shootings have been a big problem and over the years the government has done many things to protect us from deaths by firearms and school shootings. They have been making it harder and harder to obtain a firearm which is really what was necessary to do. Making it difficult to get a firearm into a school and knowing how to handle a school shooting situation will save lives if anything were to happen like that again. I feel gun control laws will get stricter and the schools and world will get safer.
In a country with more guns than people, it is not surprising that a certain number of small children are able to get their hands on unsecured firearms with tragic consequences.

The pro is that when it comes to gun safety, there should be policies in place, such as gun lock requirements to help prevent childhood gun deaths.

Future Legislation Our nation has suffered too much at the hands of dangerous people who use guns to commit horrific acts of violence. As President Obama said following the Sandy Hook Elementary School tragedy, “We won’t be able to stop every violent act, but if there is even one thing that we can do to prevent any of these events, we have a deep obligation, all of us, to try. “Most gun owners are responsible and law-abiding, and they use their guns safely. But to better protect our children and our communities from tragic mass shootings like those in Newtown, Aurora, Oak Creek, and Tucson, there are common-sense steps we can take right now. While no law or set of laws will end gun violence, it is clear that the American people want action,
Parents are also taking a step in the right direction by becoming more educated about concussions before their children are hurt and they know what symptoms to look for. The fact that parents are now educated is helping children stay safe. Also, knowing when a child should return to the game makes a drastic difference as well. Although football may still be considered an extremely dangerous sport to most, people are taking the right steps in order to make it a safer, all around sport. Everything children do could end badly and they could get hurt, so to keep them from a sport that they love would just hurt the child.
Gun control issues will continue to be a problem in the United States if things don 't change. Anyone that thinks gun control is the answer to the killing that is going on is wrong!
